    Blepharitis is a common eye condition, usually caused by an excess growth of bacteria that is ordinarily found on the skin, blockage of the eyelid's oil glands. For the treatment, you should clean your child's eyes regularly or certain hygienic measures. Strictly speaking, blepharitis could not be cured, so we should pay more attention during the suffering. Firstly, before going to bed, clean the eyelash line, add two drops of baby shampoo to about 1/3 cup of water. And then, dip some cotton buds in the water and sweep across the top. Secondly, use a washcloth and wet eyes with warm water. Here, pay attention to your hands must be clean. By the way, you could use antibiotic ointment with a clean finger to your margins of your child’s eyelids. Lastly, avoiding rubbing her/his eyes with dirty fingers or a dirty washcloth. You should consult the eye specialist if your child feel serious.

For kids get blepharitis, you can take a clean towel and wet it in warm water. Place the wet towel over eyelids for several minutes. Repeat it every day and your little brother will be healed after a week.
